This is a beautiful and well maintained campground. Even with just about every site full, this campground remained quiet throughout the night. The downside is you can't make reservations. We were fortunate enough to arrive on a Sunday afternoon and got a great waterfront site. There are two sections to this campground. The section closest to the main entrance is very crowded, but has the most level sites. This area is where most of the Class A motor homes stay. The second area is more open with more space between the sites. The negative part is most sites are not level for larger RVs. We were in a site that was 60 feet deep. But it was very difficult to get a proper level in our motorhome. In fact my right rear wheel was about 1 inch off the ground to get a good level. Overall this is a great county campground!

Very beautiful place to stay, although NOT a destination park. I find the price on the high side. The rate for the 'super site' (not sure that is what they call it) is 42.95 per night. With Good Sam discount and takes it down to $40.58 per night. We have stayed here numerous times going to and from Florida. This campground is strictly and 'overnight' campground, mainly because of the price. Each time we have stayed here we have been assigned a site that is NOT level. The motor home next to me has their front tires 3 inches off the ground to get level. Our site was cement with a 'tiny' exposed arrogate cement patio attached. Sites are closer than I like, but OK. Because of the beautiful trees and Spanish Moss satellite reception is almost impossible to obtain. I did see one or two single LNB antennas in use. Yes there is cable, but ALL channels are analog! If you have a newer digital HDTV you'll understand how poor an analog signal looks on your HDTV. Come on guys HDTV has been around for years and you can't even buy an analog Standard Def TV anymore. It's time to upgrade your cable system. I normally don't even connect to cable anymore as long as satellite is available. But when it's not available I want a good cable system available. There were three or four over the air stations digital channels available . I gave Eagle's Roost an overall 7 because of the price, un-level sites, small patio and inferior cable system. If they would drop their prices to about $30 a night I would rate them much higher. But for the amenities they currently offer, $43 per night is just way too much. The location just does not justify this price. There just is not much to choose from in this area. There is a KOA just on the other side of I-75 and another campground at exit 18 thirteen miles north of here and that's about it. So your choices are limited.

We had an ocean view site. In five nights here we saw four fantastic sunsets! The sites are narrow, almost too narrow to put your awnings out. I don't recommend doing this because of the constant wind coming off of the ocean. There was public walking access to the beach at the south end of the resort. It is a fairly easy hike, but near the bottom you will need to climb over rocks and cement to get to the beach. We will be back again!
